3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is a spicy and fruity assortment of clove, pear, peach and white pepper. Full-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is fruity & lightly spiced with a decent hop kick. Finishes with sweetness that was a little overwhelming.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I almost didnít buy a glass of this - the sample I had at the bar tasted like a cross between a wheat beer and cough syrup. But Iím giving it a shot anyway... just because Iíve had everything else available at Flying Saucer San Antonio.
It has a solid, medium-orange color and a dense, bright white head that reminds me a little of frothy egg whites. Its aroma is unique, but good... a slight perfume thatís almost floral shoves its way into the nose, then continues to decorate with a sweet, alcoholic, almost cherry-like alcohol stickiness. Itís a really nice bouquet, actually.
In the mouth... not as fun. It has a very smooth and practically silky mouth feel, but thatís where the smoothness stops. Itís flavor is a little awkward, and almost uncomfortable. I will admit that the beer is well-brewed and very interesting, but itís just too weird for me and not really that great of a drinker. Thereís an unmistakably oat or wheat-like undertone to the beer thatís a little excessive, and a slight sour or astringent resulting finish combines with the almost cough syrup-like alcohol and fruit character to cause me to make some serious inner and outer faces. Sorry, Avery... but sometimes you can mess a good thing up.

The aroma is yeasty, spicy, malty, and fruity. The appearance is cloudy gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is a good beer but not great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from Samís, Durham. Very handsome pour, deep golden with a bit of flaking detectable and a lustrous head to it. Soft floral hops in the nose but mostly ripe stripes of yeast and a bundle of dry herbal additions. Nice nose but fairly perfunctory as per most American renditions I suppose. Playful mouthfeel, taste is mostly a bit sweet although some grass and spice in the finish. Comes across as fresh and clean but the taste was just average overall.

22oz bottle. Hazy golden yellow with a small, fizzy, white head that quickly vanishes to nothing. Aroma is zesty Belgian yeast, citrus and sugary/honey malt. Flavor is spicy up front with sweet sugary malt, light musty yeast and some alcohol. Medium body with prickly carbonation. Solid beer for the style, not overly sweet.
